    Default Electric Kick Start!!

    This should get a decent sideways look and possibly some debate...

    You want the kick start look but have bad knees?

    Well EMD has your answer.


    Here's how it works...

    That would be cool on a little bobber project to help clean up the bars.

    I figured there would be some nay-sayers about it being fake.

    Fake yes, Do I think it has its place...yes.

    It all depends on the build your doing. If its a newer bike that is being bobbed I think added a real mechanical kick start would be a hassle of a mod so to give it that old school style on a new bike it works.

    It also has its place on a build with a big motor that would be a nightmare to kick!

    Back when I was still living in India, I had a Royal Enfield 500 with a kick start. If one wasn't careful of relieving the back pressure the recoil was brutal ... and being kids we thought it was funny as hell to do that to each other Max I was able to get to was 4 recoils ... stayed off the bike for 2 weeks after that.

    Don't know if I would have opted for an electric start back then but today with bad knees and ankles .. I'd get an electric start anyday!
